You may already use apps a lot throughout the day: for news and entertainment, to connect and share things with friends, or to track things like sleep, fitness, and diet. Did you know that there are also apps out there that can provide support for your mental wellbeing, and help you manage anxiety and depression?
This webinar talks about the different types of mental health apps that exist, and how they might be a helpful tool for managing anxiety and depression. While apps are not a replacement for seeing a licensed professional, they can be a starting point for getting support, an add-on to treatment you are already receiving, and/or a helpful tool to have in your back pocket to help you stay on top of your overall wellness.
Learn about the benefits and opportunities of mental health apps, in addition to some of the limitations to bear in mind. We will outline some strategies for finding mental health apps, and provide some available resources which can help, including One Mind PsyberGuide, a non-profit website that aims to help people choose apps that are right for them.
